More Selvage Fun

A good number of my fellow guild members have been giving me their selvages over the last several months. I've used a lot of them in previous projects, but sometimes some of them are very, very narrow, like the one you see here.

I decided to use the narrow ones to make a tissue holder like the one seen here on my friend Susan's blog. I had to sew them very carefully onto a foundation (I used a used dryer sheet) to make sure I caught all the edges. This is the result.

Gee Anya, I don't know where you get the patience to do this...really cute stuff.
I have my selvages in a bag and just can't get going on them.
Inspirations are great...

Anya, love your idea. I have some selvages that are very narrow too, so this would be a great way to use them up :-)

By the way I visited your favorite Montoursville Quilt Shop today, things were hoping at OGP! Mickey needed fabrics for the next commissioned baby quilt :>)! We love the fabrics in that shop!
